Lutz Performance may have come and gone but I'll always be doing what I do. Haven't had a chance to even setup shop completely yet and you see what what we're doing. Doors not "open" yet and months worth of work already sitting here!

Waiting on some engine gaskets to arrive so got started elsewhere.

Rear subframe sway bar tab reinforcement

















Different is where it's at! 4 of these should definitely fit this build well!

there were some fender/body issues that the painter didnt fully complete and so far Shawn has been able to correct their mistakes.

word of advice: make sure your shop understands the extint of the custom work needing to be performed.

Indeed! Here's the inner fenders as the body shop thought was acceptable






Properly cut and hammered out



Welded, ground smooth, and seam sealed



Painted and good to go!



Chassis progress











Interior



Engine progress
